Bacterial conjunctivitis in Muc1 null mice. (1/97)

PURPOSE: In contrast to wild-type mice, genetically engineered Mucin1 (Muc1) null animals display a marked propensity for development of blepharitis and conjunctivitis. Molecular approaches confirmed the presence of Muc1 mRNA and protein in the conjunctival tissue of wild-type mice and identified the bacterial species in Muc1 null symptomatic mice. METHODS: Muc1 null animals housed in a conventional facility were examined for visually apparent inflammation of the eye and surrounding tissue. Blood taken from overtly affected animals was assayed for antibodies to common murine viral agents. Swabs of infected eyes and whole eye preparations were used to detect and speciate bacterial pathogens. Frozen sections of whole eye, lid margin, and Harderian gland were immunostained with antibodies to Muc1 and cytokeratin 14, both epithelial cell markers. Northern blot analysis and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) were performed on RNA isolated from conjunctiva and Harderian gland of wild-type mice to compare relative levels of transcript. RESULTS: Student's unpaired t-test performed on the eye inflammation frequency of Muc1 null mice confirmed a statistical significance (P < 0.01) when compared to wild-type background animals housed in the same room. Analysis of blood samples from affected Muc1 null animals detected no common murine viral pathogens. Bacterial analysis of conjunctival swabs and whole eye preparations demonstrated the presence of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus, Streptococcus type alpha, and Corynebacterium group G2. Muc1 antibody staining of wild-type sections revealed the presence of Muc1 on conjunctival goblet and non-goblet cells and on the epithelium of the Harderian gland. Serial sections stained with cytokeratin 14 antibody confirmed the epithelial nature of cells expressing the Muc1 protein. RNA from conjunctiva and Harderian gland subjected to RT-PCR and northern blot analysis showed an abundance of Muc1 transcript in these tissues. CONCLUSIONS: Muc1 mRNA and protein are present in murine conjunctival and Harderian gland epithelia. Animals lacking Muc1 mRNA and protein are predisposed to developing eye inflammation when compared to wild-type animals with an intact Muc1 gene. Muc1 appears to play a critical protective role at the ocular surface, presumably by acting as a barrier to infection by certain bacterial strains.  (+info)

Identification and antibiotic susceptibility of coagulase negative staphylococci isolated in corneal/external infections. (2/97)

AIMS: To identify and determine antibiotic susceptibility of coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) isolated from patients with chronic blepharitis, purulent conjunctivitis, and suppurative keratitis. METHODS: A retrospective review of all culture positive cases of chronic blepharitis, purulent conjunctivitis, and suppurative keratitis between July 1995 and December 1996 was performed. Cases in which CoNS were the sole isolates were analysed. Species identification was performed by using a commercially available standardised biochemical test system. Antibiotic susceptibility to penicillin, gentamicin, tetracycline, erythromycin, ciprofloxacin, and teicoplanin was determined by agar disc diffusion (Kirby-Bauer method). Teicoplanin resistance was confirmed by agar dilution. RESULTS: 42 Staphylococcus epidermidis, four S warneri, three S capitis, two S hominis, one each of S xylosus, S simulans, S equorum, and S lugdunensis were identified. 37 CoNS were penicillin resistant, 12 gentamicin resistant, 28 tetracycline resistant, 18 erythromycin resistant, four ciprofloxacin resistant, and one teicoplanin resistant (MIC, 32 microg/ml). In total, 16 strains were resistant to three or more antibiotics. CONCLUSION: Species of CoNS apart from S epidermidis may be isolated from patients with corneal and external infection. Antibiotic susceptibility of CoNS is unpredictable and multiresistant strains are common. As a result, antibiotic susceptibility testing should be performed in all cases of clinically significant ocular infections caused by CoNS.  (+info)

Suppression of induction of experimental immune mediated blepharoconjunctivitis by tolerogenic conjugates of the antigen and monomethoxypolyethylene glycol. (3/97)

AIM: Covalent conjugates consisting of diverse antigens coupled to optimal numbers of monomethoxypolyethylene glycol (mPEG) molecules have been shown to suppress antigen specific antibody formation. In this study, the possibility was examined that the same conjugates might prevent experimental immune mediated blepharoconjunctivitis (EC, formerly EAC) which had been shown to be caused by CD4(+) T cells-that is, to cell mediated immunity. METHODS: 6-8 week old male Lewis rats were used. The test groups of rats received two intravenous injections, each of 300 microg, of a conjugate of ovalbumin mPEG (OVA(mPEG)(11)) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), 14 and 28 days before the single immunisation with OVA in complete Freund's adjuvant. The rats were challenged 3 weeks later by eye drops containing OVA; 24 hours later they were sacrificed, and their eyes, blood, and lymph nodes were harvested for histological examination and determination of anti-OVA antibody titres and levels of cellular immunity. Two control groups received PBS or OVA in PBS before immunisation. Furthermore, the possibility that OVA(mPEG)(11) may have induced OVA specific suppressor cells was tested by establishing the effects of the co-transfer of splenocytes from OVA(mPEG)(11) treated rats with OVA primed lymph node cells on the manifestations of EC. RESULTS: Either PBS or OVA pretreated rats, which had not received OVA(mPEG)(11), developed high levels of antibodies and cell mediated immune responses to OVA, and application of eye drops led to blepharoconjunctivitis with massive cellular infiltration. In contrast, pretreatment with OVA(mPEG)(11) prevented cellular infiltration into the lids and conjunctivas, as well as the formation of detectable humoral and cellular immunity against OVA. Co-transfer of splenocytes from OVA(mPEG)(11) treated rats with OVA primed lymph node cells suppressed the cellular infiltration on application of OVA on the conjunctiva. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that intravenous injection of OVA(mPEG)(11) conjugates suppressed both humoral and cellular immunity by the effects of antigen specific suppressor cells, thus leading to the inhibition of development of EC.  (+info)

Enhanced secretory group II PLA2 activity in the tears of chronic blepharitis patients. (4/97)

PURPOSE: Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) hydrolyzes phospholipids, one of the important constituents of human meibomian gland secretions. This study was performed to investigate PLA2 type and activity in the tears of chronic blepharitis patients compared to those of normal persons. METHODS: Tear samples of 36 patients and 10 normal persons were collected in non-heparinized microcapillary tubes. PLA2 activity in the tears was measured by Dole's method, and the results of the blepharitis patients were compared to those of the normal persons. The characterization of PLA2 was performed by the head group preference test and the dithiothreitol (DTT) sensitivity test. The classification of PLA2 type was done using Western blot analysis with anti-human secretory PLA2 antibody. RESULTS: No statistically significant differences were found among the six categories of chronic blepharitis. However, the mean PLA2 activity in the tears of the chronic blepharitis patients was about two times higher than that of the normal controls with statistical significance (P < 0.05). The PLA2 substrate specificity test revealed group II PLA2 activity. Furthermore, the group II PLA2 was identified as a 14 kDa band in Western blot analysis using an antibody raised against human secretory group II PLA2. CONCLUSIONS: Secretory group II PLA2 activity was significantly enhanced in the tears of the chronic blepharitis patients compared with that of the normal controls. It is suggested that this increased enzymatic activity may decrease the tear film stability through increased hydrolysis of phospholipids.  (+info)

Herpes simplex virus virion host shutoff (vhs) activity alters periocular disease in mice. (5/97)

During lytic infection, the virion host shutoff (vhs) protein of herpes simplex virus (HSV) mediates the rapid degradation of RNA and shutoff of host protein synthesis. In mice, HSV type 1 (HSV-1) mutants lacking vhs activity are profoundly attenuated. HSV-2 has significantly higher vhs activity than HSV-1, eliciting a faster and more complete shutoff. To examine further the role of vhs activity in pathogenesis, we generated an intertypic recombinant virus (KOSV2) in which the vhs open reading frame of HSV-1 strain KOS was replaced with that of HSV-2 strain 333. KOSV2 and a marker-rescued virus, KOSV2R, were characterized in cell culture and tested in an in vivo mouse eye model of latency and pathogenesis. The RNA degradation kinetics of KOSV2 was identical to that of HSV-2 333, and both showed vhs activity significantly higher than that of KOS. This demonstrated that the fast vhs-mediated degradation phenotype of 333 had been conferred upon KOS. The growth of KOSV2 was comparable to that of KOS, 333, and KOSV2R in cell culture, murine corneas, and trigeminal ganglia and had a reactivation frequency similar to those of KOS and KOSV2R from explanted latently infected trigeminal ganglia. There was, however, significantly reduced blepharitis and viral replication within the periocular skin of KOSV2-infected mice compared to mice infected with either KOS or KOSV2R. Taken together, these data demonstrate that heightened vhs activity, in the context of HSV-1 infection, leads to increased viral clearance from the skin of mice and that the replication of virus in the skin is a determining factor for blepharitis. These data also suggest a role for vhs in modulating host responses to HSV infection.  (+info)

Effects of IL-4 and IL-12 on experimental immune-mediated blepharoconjunctivitis in Brown Norway rats. (6/97)

IL-12 and IL-4 are critical cytokines for Th1 and Th2 differentiation, respectively. To assess the roles of these cytokines in the development of experimental immune-mediated blepharoconjunctivitis (EC) in Brown Norway (BN) rats, their effects were tested either in vitro or in vivo. Draining lymph node cells from rats immunized with ragweed pollen (RW) in Al(OH)3 were collected and cultured for 3 days with RW in the presence of IL-4, IL-12, or PBS as a control. After harvesting the culture supernatants for cytokine ELISA and the cells for cytokine reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction, 10 million cells were injected intravenously into syngeneic recipient rats (n = 12 per group). The rats were challenged with RW by eye drops 4 days after transfer. Eyes were harvested for histology 24 h later. Furthermore, IL-12 (500 ng per injection) or PBS was injected intraperitoneally every other day seven times from the day of active immunization (n = 6 per group). One day after the last injection, rats were challenged and EC was evaluated as above. Transfer of cells with IL-4 in vitro augmented eosinophilic infiltration in the conjunctiva compared with the other two groups, whereas IL-12 in vitro suppressed eosinophilic infiltration and increased lymphocytic infiltration. Interferon-gamma production was augmented by IL-12. IL-4 RNA expression was augmented by IL-4. IL-12 administration in vivo augmented lymphocytic infiltration in the conjunctiva without affecting infiltration of eosinophils. In conclusion, IL-4 and IL-12 either in vitro or in vivo augmented Th2 and Th1 immunity, respectively, thus leading to distinct histological features of EC.  (+info)

Hay-Wells syndrome is caused by heterozygous missense mutations in the SAM domain of p63. (7/97)

Hay-Wells syndrome, also known as ankyloblepharon-ectodermal dysplasia-clefting (AEC) syndrome (OMIM 106260), is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by congenital ectodermal dysplasia, including alopecia, scalp infections, dystrophic nails, hypodontia, ankyloblepharon and cleft lip and/or cleft palate. This constellation of clinical signs is unique, but some overlap can be recognized with other ectodermal dysplasia syndromes, for example ectrodactyly--ectodermal dysplasia--cleft lip/palate (EEC; OMIM 604292), limb--mammary syndrome (LMS; OMIM 603543), acro-dermato-ungual-lacrimal-tooth syndrome (ADULT; OMIM 103285) and recessive cleft lip/palate--ectodermal dysplasia (CLPED1; OMIM 225060). We have recently demonstrated that heterozygous mutations in the p63 gene are the major cause of EEC syndrome. Linkage studies suggest that the related LMS and ADULT syndromes are also caused by mutations in the p63 gene. Thus, it appears that p63 gene mutations have highly pleiotropic effects. We have analysed p63 in AEC syndrome patients and identified missense mutations in eight families. All mutations give rise to amino acid substitutions in the sterile alpha motif (SAM) domain, and are predicted to affect protein--protein interactions. In contrast, the vast majority of the mutations found in EEC syndrome are amino acid substitutions in the DNA-binding domain. Thus, a clear genotype--phenotype correlation can be recognized for EEC and AEC syndromes.  (+info)

Primary herpes simplex virus type 1 infection of the eye triggers similar immune responses in the cornea and the skin of the eyelids. (8/97)

Herpetic stromal keratitis (HSK) and blepharoconjunctivitis in humans are thought partly to result from immunopathological responses to herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). The corneas of NIH mice were inoculated with HSV-1 (strain McKrae) and mice were examined for signs of disease and infection on days 1, 4, 7, 10, 14 and 21. The eyes and eyelids of infected and control mice were processed for immunohistochemistry and double stained for viral antigens and one of the following cell surface markers (Gr-1, F4/80, CD4, CD8, CD45R or MHC class II) or one of the following cytokines (IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-12 or IFN-gamma). All infected mice developed signs of HSK by day 4 and blepharitis by day 7 and these both persisted until day 21, when signs of resolution where apparent. Virus was detected during the first week of infection and became undetectable by day 10. Large numbers of Gr-1(+) cells (neutrophils) infiltrated infected corneas and eyelids in areas of viral antigen and CD4(+) T cells increased significantly in number after virus clearance. In both sites, the predominant cytokines were IL-6, IL-10, IL-12 and IFN-gamma, with few IL-2(+) and IL-4(+) cells. These observations suggest that the immune responses in the cornea are similar to those in the eyelids but, overall, the responses are not clearly characterized as either Th1 or Th2. In both sites, the neutrophil is the predominant infiltrating cell type and is a likely source of the cytokines observed and a major effector of the disease process.  (+info)

What is Blepharitis?Blepharitis is the medical term for inflammation of the eyelids. Blepharitis can either be anterior (on the outside front edge of the eyelids) or posterior (on the inner edge of the eyelids). What are the Symptoms of Blepharitis?. Burning sensation in the eyes/Gritty feeling in eyes. Tearing Itchy, red, swollen eyelids. Dry eyes Crusting eyelids or "dandruff" on the eyelids. In severe cases, blepharitis can lead to blurred vision, loss of eyelashes and inflammation in other parts of the eye. What Causes Blepharitis?. Blepharitis can be caused by hormones, nutrition, and infectious agents In anterior blepharitis, the main cause is either a bacterial infection or dandruff of the scalp area. It can also be caused by allergies In posterior blepharitis, the main cause is usually irregular oil production by the eyelid glands. This leads to bacterial growth. Acne and rosacea can also cause this type of blepharitis. When does Blepharitis Occur?. Blepharitis affects people of all ...

... is a condition that causes inflammation in the eyelids. Many people have blepharitis. It is also called "granulated eyelids." There are two types of Blepharitis:. Anterior blepharitis - This type affects the outer front part of the eyelid, where the eyelashes are attached. The two most common causes of anterior blepharitis are bacteria (Staphylococcus) and scalp dandruff.. Posterior blepharitis - This type affects the inner eyelid, in the moist part that makes contact with the eye. This part of the eyelid contains oil (meibomian) glands. Problems with these glands cause posterior blepharitis.. People with certain skin disorders are more likely to get posterior blepharitis. These disorders include acne rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis (scalp dandruff).. ...
Inflammation of the eyelids is known as blepharitis. The margins of the eye lids are inflamed, causing redness and itching of the eye lids. This problem recurs after intervals and is the leading cause of recurrent pink eye in elderly people. Often times this condition mimics Dry Eyes because of the sensation it causes under the persons eye lids.. There are two types of blepharitis - anterior blepharitis and posterior blepharitis. The former affects the front part of the lids, near the lashes. It is caused either by the Staphylococcus bacteria or a condition similar to dandruff, known as seborrheic dermatitis. The back of the lids is affected by the latter, and this affected area is actually what makes contact with the eye. The oil glands present in the area are the causal factors.. Posterior blepharitis is more common than anterior blepharitis. The primary treatment for blepharitis consists of a daily lid margin hygiene. Blepharitis is oftentimes a lifelong condition. The routine is fairly ...

Azithromycin in DuraSite® for the treatment of blepharitis Jodi LuchsDepartment of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USAAbstract: Blepharitis is a common inflammatory disease of the eyelid. Posterior blepharitis affects the posterior lamella of the eyelid and involves inflammation of the meibomian glands, whereas anterior blepharitis affects the anterior lamella of the eyelid and the eyelashes; either version can be inflammatory or infectious in nature. Each of these conditions can incite or propagate the other; anterior blepharitis, if not treated, can lead to meibomian gland disease, and vice versa. Blepharitis is typically chronic, and can be associated with a variety of systemic diseases such as dermatitis, as well as ocular diseases such as dry eye, conjunctivitis, or keratitis. The standard treatment regimen historically consists of lid hygiene with warm compresses and eyelid scrubs, although these treatment modalities may have limited efficacy for
Blepharitis, in laymans words, is the inflammation of the eyelids accompanied with such symptoms as redness, itching, burning, excessive tearing, blurred vision, and dry eye. These symptoms are associated with bacterial infections on the lids. As currently there is no effective cure for blepharitis, involves controlling the condition. In most cases, blepharitis can be effectively prevented by maintaining adequate hygiene. But for more serious cases, medications or natural treatment of blepharitis should also be considered.. The basic treatment of blepharitis involves keeping the lids clean. You should apply warm compresses to your lids to loosen crusts and then scrub the eyelids with a cotton swab. Baby shampoo has been used traditionally for eyelid hygiene, but it is not antibacterial and long time use of it will make the skin dry. As blepharitis does not disappear completely and reoccurrence is common, regular eyelid hygiene is important to prevent its reoccurrence.. is not a serious ...

Blepharitis is a condition where the eyelids become inflamed. The part of the eyelid where the eyelashes grow is mostly affected by this condition. It may affect one eyelid or both eyelids of the patient. The condition mostly occurs when tiny oil glands located near the base of your eyelashes get clogged. This condition may lead to red eyes and eye irritation. Blepharitis is considered a chronic disease which is quite difficult to treat. Hence, most of the patients may not require blepharitis treatments to get rid of the illness. On the other hand, this condition cannot be 100% cured, but the symptoms could be controlled with a proper eyelid hygiene routine. This read offers an overview of blepharitis treatments. For more information please visit http://www.dryeyesclinic.co.uk/Treatment.. The main symptoms of the condition include red and watery eyes, itchy eyelids, greasy eyelids, crusted eyelashes, loss of eyelashes, sensitivity to light, and frequent blinking.

Blepharitis is a chronic condition, and there is no cure, but appropriate treatments can help manage symptoms. While over-the-counter treatments for blepharitis are available, it is advisable to consult your optometrist if you experience these symptoms. There are several ways to treat blepharitis. Cleaning away the crusty material around the lashes with warm compresses (at least twice daily) helps keep the lashes clean and improves the flow of the oily component of tears. Commercial lid scrubs (medicated pads similar to the ones used to remove eye makeup) help clean the eyelids further. An effective substitute for commercial lid scrubs is a small amount of baby shampoo diluted with warm water and applied to the eyelashes with a cotton ball. In some cases, prescription antibiotic ointments applied to the lid margins may help manage the symptoms of blepharitis. Artificial tear and steroid eye drops may also be prescribed by your optometrist. In severe cases, oral antibiotics may be ...

In many susceptible people, stress seems to trigger the development of a sty.
